Bus Lane Enforcement

Bus lanes are now being enforced in Tameside using camera technology which captures the registration number of vehicles that are not authorised to use the bus lanes.

The scheme helps make our public transport system as reliable and punctual as possible and reduce congestion.

Tameside has Bus Lanes on the following roads:

Traffic Camera
  • Oldham Rd, Ashton under Lyne
  • Audenshaw Rd, Audenshaw
  • New Beech St, Hyde
  • Manchester Rd South, Denton
  • Manchester Rd North, Denton

If a driver is found to be illegally driving in a bus lane, the Council will send a Penalty Charge Notice to the registered keeper of the vehicle along with photographic evidence. The charge is £60, reduced to £30 if paid within 14 days of the date of service.  (Bus Lane Penalty Charge notices issued from 31st May 2022 the charge is £60, reduced to £30 if paid within 21 days of the date of service).

There is an appeals process to ensure that anyone who feels they have been unjustly fined can have their appeal reviewed by a Council officer. If the Council accepts your representations, you will be notified of the decision. If the Council rejects your representations, you will be sent a Notice of Rejection and details of how to pay the penalty charge notice or appeal to the Traffic Penalty Tribunal.
